Wonderful drama here, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It was a somewhat dramatic day, Ray...I took this after being locked out of the car(Nissan Rogue owners beware !) for an hour or so,in freezing conditions, only being rescued by a friend of ours who drove out to get me. It would have been somewhat ironic to freeze to death in a desert...
you do storms very well my friend...

so glad that you got saved from freezing in the desert....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Peter, so was I...smile
Wonderful dramatic image Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Richard.

My, you do get a lot of storms in Arizona - but missed the one in Blackpool this weekend!
Frank L Croston.: We do, like the one last night, we awoke to two inches of snow,and five below freezing, but tomorrow the sun will shine, the weather forecasts are very accurate here. Yes, can't say I missed missing it in Blackpool!
I'm so pleased that you managed to snap some beautiful shots after your harrowing experience!
Now that we know what we know... and I'm SO glad you didn't freeze to death! XOX
Frank L Croston.: I did make the best of it after that...The car was very warm smile Me too, thanks, Elizabeth.
The storm has been on the Horizon of the World for some time now, Frank, and is more than dramatic, as we all know. I would like to believe it will subside and even pass before we're all dead and buried...or at least before a new one arises?!
Frank L Croston.: Hear, hear to that, Ginnie...

You live a dangerous life in Arizona, maybe Elizabeth should hold your hand more often wink
Absolute fabulous picture. LOVE the scale of the big truck. Warning: don't mess around with nature.
Frank L Croston.: Only due to my incompetence and strange Japanese engineering, Astrid! Well when we are together, we never let go...Thank you. Don't worry, lesson learnt.

Already I've had enough of storms smile I've got no power at the moment; no shower, no heating, no internet but even worse no tea! This is very dramatic. Somehow US storms always seem far bigger than those in the UK.
Frank L Croston.: They do, Alan...No tea!!! That is serious...
You might have been wanting to turn around. Excellent shot.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Mary, no, I headed into it for more pic's! smile
That looks a giant storm cloud Frank, I hope you weren't too badly affected.
Frank L Croston.: It was, Andrew, snow, hail, wind, fortunately I got picked up before the worst of it. Thanks.
Glad you made it safely back Frank, but at least you got a decent shot whilst waiting to be rescued.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Brian, I got a few, you'll see them this week.
The perils associated with the gentle pursuit of photography
Frank L Croston.: No such thing as bad weather, Martin, just the wrong clothes...The right clothes were locked in the car!!

Powerful - I don't think I would want to be driving into that.
Frank L Croston.: It was ok, I sat in the car, nice and warm eating my lunch, and watching the weather.

Fantastic weather shot, Frank!

Looks frightening.
Frank L Croston.: If I had still been locked out of our car it would have been, Hollie...:-( but fortunately not, just dramatic.
